This is a pool house we did in NJ near the shore. The frame is eastern white pine and stained with sikkens. It is about 1000 sq feet. the four valleys meet at a “compression ring” to allow the cupula on top to have unobstructe light from the windows

Available for rent or long term lease? I’ll see this in the daily top 3 very soon. Excellent building…..or is it a man cave?

Man, if I had the money, timber frame would definitely be the way I’d build my house. Excellent job!

Really an over the top pool house. Does it have radiant floor heat? Those folding doors must have been fun
to set up to make sure they were airtight. Thank you for sharing.

How much does something like this cost compared to regular framing? Roughly.
